e-End provides technology to the disabled of Frederick Maryland

Today, e-End donated twenty computers to the disabled community of Frederick, Maryland

e-End presented a donation of twenty computers to The Buddy Project. The Buddy Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization headquartered in Frederick, MD and has already served more than 500 individuals since its founding in 2007. Their service provides refurbished computers to those who are intellectually and developmentally disabled. Their computers are set up specifically for people with disabilities. This is a dire need in the disabled community due to the misconception that disabled people cannot learn to use technology. The disabled that receive the refurbished computer, also receive a training curriculum from the organization that is covered with each and every client to help them better understand their computer and how they work.

We were low on computers and e-End stepped in to help us. These computers will facilitate job skills training for the disabled, such as A+ certification courses.

As a certified Microsoft Refurbisher, e-End routinely donates unused IT equipment they receive to local organizations. Reuse is the highest level of recycling and reduces e-waste in the local community. e-End maintains the highest level of security for its clients data. They ensure 100% of the data is removed from media on electronic equipment, and are certified by the National Association of Information Destruction. If a client is not opposed, e-End does its best to place unused electronics back into use. Donating to organizations like The Buddy Project and Mistaken Identity makes a huge difference in the community and the environment.

e-End is certified for electronics recycling by the Responsible Recycling (R2) accreditation standard, under the housing-body of Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI), a non-profit organization dedicated to the responsible reuse, repair, and recycling of electronic products.
